Was peak Safin as fit as peak Fed?
I know Safin got injured more often, but was his endurance every bit as good?
He recovered well from their long semi in 2005 AO to beat Hewitt comfortably in the final.
I didnt watch tennis at the time Safin was at his peak, was his fitness his greatest asset?
"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "
